Since James Gunn's shots of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 there have been more questions than answers about the future of the MCU's most cosmic franchise. Would James Gunn be returned? Would his script be used? Who will replace him? Will Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 delay or will it happen at all? Some of these questions were answered, but with production starting this winter, it was clear that things had to be sorted out sooner rather than later. Now it seems that Marvel will not rush things, as the production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been put on hold
This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, stating that the small one Group that prepared the pre-production for the film was dismissed. The pre-production was scheduled to start this autumn in advance of a winter shot and the film hired a crew to prepare for it, but now it has stopped. These crewmembers were told that they are now free to look for new jobs. This delay in production was characterized as a way to regroup Marvel and Disney after James Gunn's fires. Guardian of the Galaxy 3 never had an official release date, but all signs pointed to 2020. Now at least the production schedule has been postponed.
It seems that Marvel and Disney are not rushing to find a filmmaker replacing James Gunn. Apparently, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, one of the names the fans appoint as a substitute for James Gunn for the film, has recently had a meeting with Marvel, but it is not known if it guardian the Galaxy 3 or something else. We can not say that technically Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been postponed, as it never had an official release date, but this production boost makes 2020 less likely.
While I think we're all eager for more Guardians this is probably the smartest move that Marvel and Disney could make. After the last word came that James Gunn would not be reinstated, the studio would have had to hire someone else and soon in advance of pre-production in the fall. The wound is still fresh and Dave Batista is still raging against it. A delay is probably the best for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 . This gives Marvel time to find the absolutely right person for the job; someone who can work with the cast and the material. Whether James Gunn's script is used or not is still an open question. A possible delay allows anyone to take some distance from the disappointment that James Gunn was fired at, and it's not that Marvel does not have many characters and films that can use it anywhere Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Should Land
